Deck Plans

What to Expect

Manta Queen 5 skips the Similan Islands and dives only the more advanced northern dive sites. The marine ecology in this northern area is amazing, colourful schools of fish, coral reefs, and endangered species that welcome divers like the Whale Sharks or Manta Rays. Look out for such photogenic little critters as ghost pipefish, sea moths, frogfish, ribbon eels and many different nudibranchs. Koh Bon and Koh Koh Tachai, members of the Similan Marine Park, are first visited en-route to the farthest and world-famous dive site of Richelieu Rock in the Surin National Marine Park.  


Whatever your scuba diving pleasure might be, the Similan and Surin Marine Parks are the dive destinations that will satisfy your desires and give you the trip of a lifetime.
